It seems like the culture within the New York Giants has changed since Brian Daboll and Joe Schoen came to town.
Players have raved about Daboll’s ability to communicate ideas better while Schoen continues to clean up the mess made by his predecessor Dave Gettleman.
While they exude the confidence that they will win a lot of games this season, they remain cautiously optimistic about their chances.
Still, any improvement from their 4-13 mark in 2021 is a step toward a positive direction.
But aside from enjoying Daboll’s company, the players are also spending more time with one another.
A good chunk of offensive players including Daniel Jones and the #Giants QBs, Saquon Barkley, Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton are currently in North Carolina working out/bonding with the season on the horizon. These offseason get-togethers have been commonplace with Jones.

ESPN’s Jordan Raanan tweeted, “A good chunk of offensive players including Daniel Jones and the #Giants QBs, Saquon Barkley, Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton are currently in North Carolina working out/bonding with the season on the horizon. These offseason get-togethers have been commonplace with Jones.”
Jones is rubbing off Daboll’s influence by enforcing his role as the team’s leader.
While waiting for training camp to start, he is already leading his fellow offensive players in staying in shape.
More importantly, they get to build chemistry by knowing each other better.
Those activities foster better communication which will help them relay messages even if the crowd goes wild.
The Giants Could Be Flying Under The Radar
Having an offensive-minded head coach could boost the Giants’ ability to score.
They do have the personnel to make it work starting from Barkley who has transformed himself physically this offseason.
Shepard, Slayton, and Kadarius Toney could have solid numbers as long as Jones finds them downfield.
Daboll’s system can unlock their capabilities which were grossly downplayed during the Joe Judge era.
Therefore, they have the ability to make it tough for other NFL teams and possibly pull off some upsets.
